Hi all,

Does anyone know who else in Toronto carries the above product, besides Mrs. Bridges' British Bakery at Eglinton Square? Mrs. Bridges' is out of stock at the moment, and doesn't always have it in stock for that matter.

Thank you!

      Thanks, 001mum! It's a bit far to drive there, but shipping might be possible - I'll ask my Mum (who wants it).

          Thanks, katdog; I tried phoning but no answer as yet - perhaps they're closed on Mondays. Will try them again.

          Susan, there is the Scottish Shop @ Leslie/401 I believe I have seen "British Stuff!" there-maybe give them a call? There is also a Britsh shop in Guelph in one of the malls off
          Hwy6 North which turns into Gordon Street. (i think it's where the No Frills is) if you ever take a day trrip out there * give them a call first.(**** well, it was there 2 years ago) :)

          I'll try to remember to ask a friend (from England) and then check back with you.

            Thanks, 001mum! I checked the Scottish Shop and they carry it but they're also out of stock till the end of the week - must be a popular item!

                Thanks, Marie! I've driven by the Choc. Box many times - will now have a good reason to stop in; the location is handy too.

        Robinsons cordials are very popular indeed at Blighty's. Now you have another great summer flavour to add to your choices.

        Each bottle of No Added Sugar cordial makes a gallon of refreshing, fruity, summer drink for your family for less than four dollars. Brilliant!

        Orange
        Lemon
        Orange & Pineapple
        Orange & Mango
        Apple & Blackcurrant.
        Lemon Barley Water (the official soft drink of the Wimbledon tennis tournament) and Orange Barley Water also available for just a buck more.

        Located in ORANGEVILLE about 80km northwest of Toronto on Highway #10
        Address: 6-88 First Street Orangeville Ontario L9W 3J6 (in the Staples plaza

          Thanks, Spelunk! This, along with the other hounds' advice/locations, could be the makings of a Robinsons "Quest for Lemon Barley Water" road trip! Cheers, everyone!
